After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, repeatedly press the F8 key. The Advanced Boot Options menu opens. If it doesn't the motherboard is most likely bad).
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press the ENTER key.
If that does not work, turn PC off, Do this again, but this time choose 'repair your computer' at the top.
If it still does not work, either your hard drive went bad or Windows is corrupt. Either way Windows must be re-installed.
Try these two things:
1. Go to your BIOS setting by pressing F10 immediately after you switch on your notebook, then select your HDD as your First boot drive and then save changes and exit. If it does not works then follow step 2.
2. Reinstall/freshinstall your Windows OS with a windows OS disc.
try pressing the F2 key during the boot process to enter set up (bios) using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter make sure its set to boot from your hard drive press F10 to save to cmos restart
Windows won't start up? Well, try this Download Tenorshare Data Recovery from its offical site and install it. Burn it into CD/DVD, or USB flash, put into the computer you need to repair, Bios setting.It can make sure your important data will not lose.Best of luck Related: windows won't start
I'm sorry but I don't know how to reset your BIOS. But to get around your problem, you should be able to enter the boot menu to boot to the optical drive to install your OS.
In order to access the boot options on this notebook computer, press the F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.
To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer.
Restart the computer while tapping the deleate key this should bring you to bios go to advanced and check if the harddrive is listed with it highlighted press enter to enter the sub menu make shure its not disabled if it is enable it hit escape key to exit sub menu go to Boot on main menu set hard drive as 1st boot device set cd/dvd drive as 2nd boot device press f10 to save changes and exit. Try restarting
if you get msg opperating system not found use the system restore disk
Hope This Helps good luck

Sounds like your hard drive is not booting and that your keyboard isn't responding to your pressing F2 and F12. If you can locate a USB external keyboard or if you have a round PS2 port for an external keyboard/mouse - plug into the laptop with that then press F12 while the computer is booting, press it a few times to be sure you get it in the buffer - then the boot manager should show up. If it does, choose to boot the Hard Drive if available - same with pressing F2 - Setup or Bios CMOS Settings should be displayed, here you can try to boot from the Hard Drive or Check to see if the hard drive is being recognized or not.
You may need a new keyboard if your laptop keyboard doesn't get you into either menu, and to either make sure your hard drive is responding and can be set to be the default boot device.
Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).
Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.
